MILAN SQUAD DETAILS

Coach Massimiliano Allegri

For many months it looked as if there would be a different Coach on the bench this season, but against all odds Allegri – and Vice-President Adriano Galliani – convinced President Silvio Berlusconi to give him one more year. He is under orders to bring back a trequartista role and use Stephan El Shaarawy, so he’ll hardly be feeling secure at San Siro. The former Cagliari boss traditionally has rough starts to a campaign, which he cannot afford anymore.
